Round Table: Using DevOps to drive Digital Transformation

 

We are delighted to have some key members of our DevOps workgroup back together at The Sunday Business Post’s CIO & IT Leaders Summit, hosting a roundtable.

The workgroup created the IT-CMF DevOps Effectiveness Assessment, a new assessment providing a holistic analysis of an organization’s DevOps maturity. Results are compiled into a logical and easy to understand report that identifies the key IT-CMF critical capabilities to for improvement.

Laura Mc Quillan, former leader of the DevOps workgroup will lead the round table. Her extensive hands-on experience throughout the software development lifecycle has made her a strong advocate of practices and culture of DevOps and Agile and the benefits they can bring to an organization, its people and their customers.

Graeme Clarke, Global Service Manager for SQS DevOps service line, was a key contributor to the workgroup. His work for the research and development wing of SQS’s Digital Labs gives him visibility on the challenges of digital transformation.

Louise Veling is a Research Fellow with IVI and one of the co-creators of the DevOps assessment.

This roundtable is an opportunity to tease out ideas about the benefits and challenges of DevOps as a conduit to a more efficient and effective organisation. Bring specific examples of your challenges for discussion!
